Umag

Trip Planner Europe  /  Croatia  /  Istria  /  Umag
Umag is a coastal city in Istria, Croatia. The city hosts a yearly ATP tennis tournament on clay courts.GeographyIt is the westernmost city of Croatia, and the municipality includes Bašanija, the westernmost point of Croatia.PopulationUmag has a population of 7,769, for a total municipal population of 13,064 . Like many other towns in Istria, Umag has a multi-ethnic population. Croats comprise an absolute majority with 59.6%; Italians 18.3%, Serbs 3.8%, Slovenes 2.2%, Bosniaks 1.7%, Albanians 1.3% and those regionally declared make up the final 1.57%.HistoryUmag was mentioned for the first time in the 7th century by an anonymous citizen from Ravenna, but already existed in Roman times. Proof of that is found in the numerous remains of Roman retreats, the so-called villa rustica uncovered all along the coast. The town's history is closely linked to the settlement of Sipar whose ruins can be found on the narrow cape, six kilometres north of Umag. In the 9th century, the fortified settlement of Sipar was devastated by invaders, the Neretva pirates. However, after this unfortunate incident Umag grew in significance thanks also to its location, a small islet separated from the mainland with a narrow channel. It was actually this location that safeguarded the settlement from the continuous invasions throughout the centuries. The Roman period of relative prosperity was substituted by one of insecurity caused primarily by frequent invasions, outbreaks of plague, cholera, and malaria. The number of its dwellers declined rapidly. Umag became part of the reigns of Odoacer, Theodoric, and was also ruled by the Langobards.
